I just turned 73 and only started writing poetry about a year and a half ago. It was quite a surprise when one day the words started flowing out from nowhere. I had a lot to learn about poetry, and have since become quite taken with the different styles. Must be the designer in me! Lol! I have written in a least 50 different formats and will be sharing some of them with you. I still have much to learn and hope to read a lot of your poems as well. Glad to be on PS and hope to make many friends and share our work for many years to come.
